Scoop.it integrates with Yammer to supercharge enterprise social media

Spread the love

Be gone, irritating chain email about a fake virus scare that your head of HR sent out! Away, pictures of a random offsite meeting that no one actually cares about! Never again will your inbox show 298324 because everyone replied all on a staff-wide email about break room etiquette!

We decided to integrate with Yammer because we believe the communities of co-workers and colleagues in the enterprise being formed on the Yammer platform deserve a better mechanism for sharing relevant, value-adding content with their teams and with each other than email currently offers, thereby facilitating greater and more meaningful exchanges of knowledge with one another.

Enterprise knowledge sharing is becoming more and more important to stay ahead of the curve and keep up with smaller, more agile teams. Relevant breaking industry news and brand new ideas can help employees work, sell, and manage their resources more effectively. Smart does have a ROI and it can be accelerated through better knowledge management systems.

Scoop.it for Yammer allows professionals to communicate across teams and easily source and share great content — enriched with their own unique insight — to supercharge their Yammer feed, sparking better communication and idea sharing among co-workers.

To use, simply sign in to Scoop.it or sign up for a free Scoop.it account, create a topic, and attach your Yammer account through the Scoop.it sharing options. Then scroll through your suggested content, select an article to share, edit to include your expert opinion, and share to all your social profiles, including your Yammer account, in one click. Or, when you find a piece of interesting content anywhere on the web, simply use the Scoop.it bookmarklet to share any content from anywhere with your Yammer feed.

We’re very excited to be able to integrate with a great company like Yammer and push great content and unique perspectives into the enterprise, where they are definitely needed.

What do you think? Do you think high-quality content and idea sharing is a step forward for enterprise communication? Tell us in the comments.

An an excellent way to use curation inside your organization. The obvious benefits are ease-of-use, curation by appropriate experts and speed. This has great potential benefits for knowledge sharing inside any organization.

In the spirit of sharing, you might have included even 1 link to something yammer.

This is very cool. I was wondering if there is a way to post directly to a group in Yammer, rather than to the main company stream.

Yammer groups are not supported yet but thanks for the suggestion: noted!

I’ve just started posting scoop.it to yammer. i work in a very large company, and posting to “all company” is really not an option.

I’m going to have to stop using it if Yammer groups are not supported. Have you made any progress in the past year on this?

Hi Vince – We’ve actually added a lot to Scoop.it to make it useful in the context of a large organization. Care to hear about it? We’d be happy to give you a tour: shoot us an email at business at scoop.it so we can schedule something.

I agree. Yammer group support would be cool !

Looks like there’s still a few bugs with the integration. Couldn’t get it to work, kept getting a “The development team will be notified of this horrible mistake” message.

Hey @Mark_Make_Them_Click:disqus – Thanks for reporting. We had one rarely occurring configuration that triggered a similar result and that was fixed since then (it occurred when you were logged in to both Scoop.it and Yammer with different email addresses and initiated the connexion from Yammer: was that your case? Don’t hesitate to send details and we’ll investigate. Thanks!)

Mark @ Make Them Click

Actually I was trying to do it from within Scoopit using the Profile menu and selecting the Yammer icon.

Just tried it again today and it worked fine, must have just been a bad day before.

I think I have this problem. My yammer mail address is different from that of used in Scoop.It? Any suggestions on how to integrate?

TIA.

If someone rescoops to their account on Yammer will that show up in our feeds here too? Will people be able to follow a link back to the original Scoop.it curator?

@thatgrrl:disqus Yes. It works exactly as sharing on Facebook.
